21 August 2014: Houston – Aggreko, a global leader in temporary power generation, temperature control and oil-free compressed air solutions, announced the opening of a new service center in Salt Lake City to meet the growing needs of local businesses, remote operators and refining customers. Backed by a nationwide network of service centers, the 7,000 sq ft facility maintains the full complement of Aggreko’s equipment and services, including local sales, service and support to more rapidly mobilize, install and operate both planned and emergency projects of all sizes.
“Unconventional oil & gas activity in the Wasatch mountain range is on the rise as operators drill deeper into formations and further into remote areas,” said Jim Kelley, Vice President, Mountain Area General Manager, Aggreko North America. “As a result, we’re seeing a rise in the demand for temporary power generation and temperature control solutions to support remote unconventional activity all the way to the processing of hydrocarbons once they reach the refineries.”
Salt Lake City has already seen substantial growth and with it, refinery bottlenecks due to seasonal performance issues and lack of needed infrastructure. Aggreko’s full-service center will include technicians and on-site sales teams to help alleviate this issue and enhance bottom-line performance for remote operators and refineries. Additionally, customers will benefit from Aggreko’s Remote Monitoring (ARM) service, which transmits real-time data from equipment, allowing Aggreko to anticipate, diagnose and solve problems faster and with greater accuracy – and proactively head off potential issues.
Customers can also expect to take advantage of Aggreko’s specialized service teams. Aggreko Process Services (APS) is an experienced process engineering team that helps customers improve their processes and operations to enhance bottom-line performance and address environmental concerns. Another specialized service team, Aggreko Cooling Tower Services (ACTS,) focuses on improving cooling water performance and reliability through temporary cooling tower installations. Unique to the rental industry, APS and ACTS can design, install and provide technical support and maintenance at extremely short notice.
“Helping operators increase their production and reduce their costs while simultaneously helping refineries keep pace with incoming process demands benefits everyone,” said Kelley. “And when the industries are profitable, so are the communities that support them.”
Aggreko will supply the area with all the company’s major rental product lines, including:
- Diesel and natural gas generators from 30 kW to 1,500 kW
- Temperature-control equipment - chillers, cooling towers, air conditioners and heaters
- Oil-free air compressors, both diesel and electric
- Refinery-grade heat exchangers
- Cooling towers – capable of cooling millions of gallons of water per minute
Aggreko’s new facility is open for business and located at 2612 S. Constitution Blvd., Salt Lake City, UT.
